    synchronize folders between vista and xp?

    Hello!

    My desktop pc is running Vista ultimate.
    My laptop is running XP SP2.
    What is the best tool to synchronize my personal documents between these 2
    pc's, so that they have the exact same files and folder structure?
    It would be a bi-directional sync: one file modified on one pc would be
    copied to the other one.
    Thanks in advance,

    -g

    Thanks for reporting this. I don't beta-test, but I may have
    another look later.

    Anybody else using it? How does it go?
